Fantastic!!.....Thanks for the info!  This will give me something to think about.......Larry

There are two that the Hot Rod guys use on Cosmoline:

Gold Crew P2  and/or Stodard Solvent    Both are environmentally friendly.

I’ve also heard of people using Gasoline, Naptha and Mineral Spirits, but the resulting effluent is difficult to dispose of.  Maybe not a big deal if you’re way out on a farm somewhere, but not so cool if you live in town.  

Lastly, Cosmoline dissolves at less than 212° so the Navy, which had the stuff developed to keep things from rusting in the South Pacific during WWII, simply use a steam cleaner and wash the stuff off.  You could do the same by having a decent radiator repair shop clean it inside and out.

Thanks Gordon....good info, I have included this info my notes....Larry

Hot tank it at the radiator shop. Rinse it at home with a small amount of gasoline if it smells like chemicals, then drain into your lawnmower fuel can. Then blow compressed air all around inside and leave the cap off to evaporate/dry in the sun.

Paint it now if you want to. Also buy yourself the stainless sock screen and a new spigot, fiber washer and nut, all from Cip1.com when you order the tank.
